Nice, what's it got for power? Can't remember ever seeing a Taurus police car, at least around here in Oregon.

It has the 3.5Ltr 24 Valve V6 with 263hp plus Police package with upgraded radiator, bigger brakes, heavy duty suspension and dual exhaust.

We also received some Chargers that are running plain packages (no markings) with black mags.

For reals!!! The Chargers look sweet down here too! Man, they should totally have some Challengers tho'...ha! That would stop people from speeding cuz they'd be too busy trying to get a look at 'em!

BTW, I thought they weren't making the Taurus anymore?

Yep, they're still making the Taurus. This one is a 2009 model. No I don't get to take it home. I share it with three other officers.

Hey Crewzin!

Thanks Frank. Too bad your so far away. I could show you what the lights and sirens look and sound like in your rear view mirror.
